PUMA Politics: Obama Creating More PUMAs

I just love the Internet.  It is absolutely amazing what little trails of bread crumbs, when followed, bring a person to some absolute truths.  Once again, it appears the Democratic Party and the Obama Campaign are pressuring someone else to achieve the results they want; no matter the cost to the Democratic Party and the country.   Three news articles prove that the Dems are still trying to game the system and in the process the Obama campaign is creating more PUMAs by the minute.

According to WCBStv.com, Sources: Intense Pressure Led To Palin UN Snub (CBS 2 HD Has Learned Democrats Threatened To Attack Jewish Groups’ Tax Exempt Status Over VP Nominee Invite.

  • Sources tell CBS 2 HD that a decision to disinvite Palin from the high profile rally after Clinton pulled out in a huff came as the result of intense pressure from Democrats.
  • “This is insulting. This is embarrassing, especially to Gov. Palin, to me and I think it should be to every single New Yorker,” Assemblyman Dov Hikind, D-Brooklyn, told CBS 2 HD.
  • Sources say the axes were out for Palin as soon as Sen. Clinton pulled out because she did not want to attend the same event as the Republican vice presidential candidate.
  • “I have never seen such raw emotion — on both sides,” said someone close to the situation.
  • The groups sponsoring the rally against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaking at the UN were reportedly told, “it could jeopardize their tax exempt status” if they had Palin and not Clinton or Democratic VP candidate Joe Biden on hand.
  • So all politicians were disinvited, most prominently, Palin.
  • “It’s an absolute shame that this has happened,” Hikind said. “To threaten organizations … to threaten the Conference of Presidents that if you don’t withdraw the invitation to Gov. Palin we’re going to look into your tax exempt status … that’s McCarthyism.”
  • Another Jewish group tried to step into the breach by inviting Palin to a different protest a day earlier.
  • “I’m absolutely appalled at the behavior of the Democrats,” said Bob Kunst of Defenders.net. “I’m a Democrat and for the first time in my life I’m going to vote Republican. I can’t take it anymore.”

Now I realize that one story with undisclosed sources can be a little like crying wolf, so here is another from today, Dems Threaten Anti-Iran Rally Organizers With IRS Attack If They Let Palin Speak at Newsbusters.

  • News has emerged that the organizers of that anti-Iran rally that famously got snarled up in Senator Hillary Clinton’s ire at Governor Sarah Palin last week were threatened by New York Democrats with IRS action against their tax-exempt status if they allowed Palin to speak. CBS local NY news reported this little fact and so did NBC but most of the national news has ignored this outrageous threat to use the IRS to silence Governor Palin.
  • snip…
  • The real story here, though, is that Democrats immediately leapt to using the IRS as a weapon against the rally organizers. Along with the attacks on talk radio host Milt Rosenberg (here and here) it is becoming clear that Democrats are not interested in free speech, but will turn to threats and attacks to get their way to silence dissenting views or opposing party representatives.

And according to (believe it or not), Market Watch, JINSA Condems Decision by Presidents Conference to Politicize Anti-Iran Rally.

  • WASHINGTON, Sep 19, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Tom Neumann, Executive Director of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), today sent a letter to Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice Chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, strongly opposing the decision by the Conference of Presidents to disinvite Gov. Palin to speak at a rally scheduled for Monday, September 22 to protest the appearance of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the United Nations, and questioning why member organizations had not been consulted before this drastic action was taken.
  • Earlier this week, Sen. Clinton learned that Gov. Palin was also invited to speak at the rally and chose to withdraw her participation, essentially trivializing would have been a united, bipartisan demonstration of opposition to the Iranian government. Yesterday, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, under pressure from the Obama campaign, withdrew its invitation to Gov. Palin.
snip….
Follow the link for the text of Mr. Neumann’s letter to Malcolm Hoenlein.  I am thinking Tom Neumann and Americans following this story, may become PUMAs before the weekend is out because even though we all know that politics is a messy, dirty game; Americans still believe in “how we play the game”, and Obama and the Dems continue to go way over the line…..

    Let us just say that Mrs. Clinton did make a mistake, and Obama too.

    They should have let Mrs. Palin speak. The New York Times would have sided with Mrs. Clinton, and the New York Post with Mrs. Palin, with a frontpage photo mind you.

    If there is one thing some groups are for is freedom of speech.

    Bob Kunst has, I believe, launched an unfair attack against Senator Clinton. He has accused her of backing away from her support of Israel, and weakening her position on stopping a nuclear Iran. From this statement made this past Thrusday in New York at the Israel Bonds dinner, I think she makes it quite clear where she stands.

    To my mind, withdrawing from the event was to the organizers benefit. Had she and Palin both appeared the event’s message would have been lost in the Clinton v Palin media frenzy. That does not excuse the Democratic Party, under the control of Leah Daughtry and the nut jobs at Camp Pampers, for engaging in Stalinist tactics to enforce their will on an independent entity, or any entity for that matter.

    Are you paying attention America? This is a show of what will be running the country should Obama be elected, and how it will be run. Bush/Cheney redux.

    And check out http://ohmyvalve.blogspot.com/2008/09/clinton-parade-of-smarts.html for a recap of Senator Clinton’s parade of wupp-ass this past week. But be warned, viewing may renew your anger at Commander Asshat got the nomination.

    DT, I really like the new site. Well done!
